Oh no! Coach K is sick. Bob Wenzel asks how Duke will respond. Umm...to what? Belmont is hanging in early and Michael Beasley has two early fouls for K-State.
Do you think Mike Patrick is at home next to a cardboard cut out of Vitale doing a totally "homer" play-by-play of the Duke game? (Via Mal)
Yes I do. Hey Vince Gill is in DC!
For everyone who had 18:08 in the first half in the "Paulus Flop Pool," congratulations (Via Sam)
